Using fruit to enhance your decor is a good thing.
I have utilized both faux and real fruit to add color, texture and interest
in my decor for many years.
Faux fruit has certainly come a long way from the waxed fruit of yesteryear.
Do you remember the wax fruit?….Better yet, how about the beaded fruit?
I was thrilled the first time I saw the faux fruit at Pottery Barn that truly looked real.
All of the faux fruit you will see in this post is from Pottery Barn.
Faux pears fill the vintage sherbet glasses on the dining room hutch.
Of course you will find real fruit in the fruit bowl in the kitchen.
In this vintage scalloped ironstone bowl.
In the sunroom I have used both real and faux in pretty containers on the coffee table or
most recently on the antique blanket chest.
Currently, I am using faux lemons and limes in the vintage blue and white colander.
You have most likely seen this vintage scale that I purchased in France.
Just love the faux green apples against the white ceramic and black iron of the scale.
The apples will be replaced soon with the bounty of Fall.
But then again, apples are certainly a Fall fruit!
And speaking of apples . . .
The apples in the vintage ironstone tureen displayed on a vintage grain sack
And so are these lemons in my upside down cake plate centerpiece.
When doing a centerpiece on the dining room table, I always use real fruit.
No faux food on the table! 🙂
Now the fruit decor is just not limited to the kitchen dining room area . . .
You will also see it it the guest room.
In the blue and white covered vegetable dish filled with faux pears.
I placed the pears in the dish mainly because of the color
as I have lots of “apple and pear green” in the room.
So you have seen how I use both real and faux fruit in my home.
Do you use and display lots of fruit in your decor?
I love using natural elements such as fruits and veggies
and to fool you and use the “not so natural” ones!
Hope your day is a most fruitful one!
